Segway Sighting

As I'm walking back from lunch today, I see a Segway on the way back. It's the second time I've spotted one at the Microsoft offices, and I have to admit they look pretty darn good. Zipping along at bicycle speeds, the person on it looked calm and tall. It was completely silent, or at least whatever noise it made was totally drowned out by traffic noise from the street (the 40th Street overpass, for those of you who know the area).

It's just plain cool. I'd love to see them replace city cars. Too slow to commute over the 520 bridge with, though.

too slow?
Ha! Have you driven the 520 during rush hour? Now imagine all them SUVs replaced by Segways... even if the average speed is 15, everyone would reach work sooner!

Also, if everyone had an RS50, life would be perfect: Zoomin' at nearly highway speeds, 100MPG, etc...


Best,
Chris

Re: too slow?
Wow. Beautiful bike. Yours?

The 520 bridge has gotten a lot better since the Seattle economy went in the toilet.
